Hi all,

I was out having a girls day today at a gift and hobby show, and I walked past this set-up where a gentleman was sayin that he could help deal with chronic pain associated with nerve disease and other allements. I stopped in and he applied this topical lotion really to both of my legs. Within a few minutes this wonderful cool came over my legs and I found that the intensity of the RSD pain was starting to subside. It felt very similar to when my SCS actually worked properly but the heat was gone! Ever since I broke my ankle, I have rolled in it and walked on the outside of it as well. Doctors and therapists have tried to get me to walk flat but due to the intense pain I haven't been able to. I decided to walk around the rest of the day before making a purchase, I wanted to gauge how long this would last. After 5-10 minutes I was walkin flat footed and continued to do so for the entire day! I felt amazing, I hadn't taken anything as far as medicine prior to and after a day of walking I didn't even feel the need to. Obviously my pain wasn't gone 100% and I was cured, but it was tamed down so much for the first time in a long time it's felt manageable! I purchased what is called 60 Second Pain Relief and Foot/Leg Rub both a six month supply for $40 each but I really hope I found something long term to help me come off of all these meds! I was so over joyed by how good I felt, I couldn't help but get all emotional. So now I'm asking you all, have you heard of this product or anything like it? Is it something I can really sink my hopes into or am I in for a let down as the days go on?

I used to really like Biofreeze the first few years I had RSD, but as my RSD progressed I couldn't stand the cooling effect.

Have you tried exercise or PT in a warm pool? That might really help you to walk (in the water) without pain.
